Report: White House milked Tillman, Lynch untruths in sour times...

Jul 14, 2008 | Posted by: Iria | Full story: rawstory.com

The Bush administration willfully pushed fictional portrayals of Pat Tillman's death in Afghanistan and Jessica Lynch's capture in Iraq to create "compelling public narratives" at times when public opinion was starting to sour on the wars, Congressional investigators have found.

Intel killed Tillman to gain favor with the bleating sheep of the United Scams of America, some fell for it, but it did not bring the desired effect that the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate had hoped. Just as their 9/11 was bought by very few and the majority still want an unbiased investigation.

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots.

A President who chose the moon as our new frontier.

And a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can….Yes we can…. Yes we can… Yes we can.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

Yes we can heal this nation.

Yes we can repair this world.

Yes we can… Yes we can… Yes we can… Yes we can…

We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

We want change…. We want change…We want change…

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ..........

We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about….

Hope…

We want change… We want change… We want change….

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America.

That we are not as divided as our politics suggests;

That we are one people.

We are one nation.

And together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast.

From sea to shining sea --

Yes~! We~! Can~!…Yes~! We~! Can~!…Yes~! We~! Can~!…Yes~! We~! Can~!…

Imagine an honorable US congress and executive branch of our government.

Cheney snacks on live kittens and bush would grin into the camera and say cat crap was yummy if it made him look good.

What *I'M* waiting for is how the apologists, i.e. Podunk, Garand and the rest of the psychos, will try to spin this into some sort of "Left-Wing Conspiracy" or how this was all just made up by Obama's campaign staffers.

Jessica Lynch didn't die, you moron. If you're going to comment on this thread, at least get your basic facts straight. And Tillman didn't die "fighting fascist Islam", he was killed by fellow US soldiers. He was also a liberal atheist that hated bush.
